Are You Being True to You? (Connie J...)
I had a situation happen, recently, where someone made a comment, "That riding cart is moving so slow, because you're too fat for it."
I turned around, glared at him, and said, "You will NEVER speak to me, that way, again!!! I NEVER want to hear ANYTHING like that out of your face, to anyone!!!"
This person isn't even an acquaintance; let alone, a person who would even come close to speaking to me that way!!! I wouldn't even let my own Father!!! This guy had said similarly inappropriate things to a friend, previously.
I, of course, have not always been this way. For example, within the last year, someone triggered me, and I shrank back, and let him get to me. So, in that respect, I am happy for the obvious growth.
That's how it works, with the healing process. You find out, through every trigger, how strong you REALLY are; and grow into your truth.
I wish the process was easier; but as Daryl once told me, "The process IS the process...". It's what you do with it it, that matters.
One thing I do practice every day, is gratitude for who I am, and who I am becoming. You cannot change the past - only learn and grow from it.
I wish you continued truth in your life. Have a good day, and be safe... #ENDtheSILENCEofVIOLENCE www.ozerministriesinc.com #EtSoV #walkinTHEIRshoes
